I still don't think we'll do very well with Wijnaldum and Sissoko in their weird pseudo-positions, but a decent midfield would help.
thing is I'm not convinced by either in cm either, consistently sissoko has been most effective on the right and wijnaldum has not impressed me in cm when he's moved there or started there, seemed fairly anonymous

Likewise, looks like our scouting network have broadened their horizon's from Youtube. We'll be in for Adu next. :frantic:

My only impression of Saivet is as a brainless head-down winger. Can't imagine his transition to CM being that successful.

Have been speaking to a French guy who I work with who follows Ligue 1 very closely. He said:

Quote
Sagnol (Bordeaux manager) loves to reposition players, but IMO [Saivet] is more a winger. He lacks the aggressiveness and positioning to be an effective DM. You can clearly quickly see that he's a bit passive and there should be a reason that Sagnol is so likely to sell him. Let's hope you don't expect him to tackle too much.

Like we don't have enough non-tackling midfielders on our books. I hope your French mate is talking s***.

Well, I've seen this guy like twice and he looked alright to me. Not sure how he handles this next step should he officially join us but our midfield engine needs something because we sure as hell have to try something new or we're dropping.

What sort of player did he look like to you? Has he got a bit of physical presence or will he turn out to be another number 10 wannabe?

Bet he's a shitcunt
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

Well he's the head French Researcher on Football Manager so knows a fair bit about the French league, but we'll see as he's not spoken to the Bordeaux researcher in a while. :D

Stats really aren't a true barometer for anything but his tackling and stuff seems pretty decent, like. Certainly doesn't seem to be a classic 10, in that regard.

More likely that we have pulled out if we've secured Shelvey. It always seemed unlikely that we'd be signing both.

That guy reads the game very well, his description of the Anita/Colback partnership is spot on. I really hope we get this lad now.

Hmm, every other bit of info I've seen suggests he's been s*** on the wing when he's played there but taken to central and defensive midfield very well :dontknow:  Also while far from conclusive Who Scored have him rated at 6.1 when he's played attacking left wing and 7.5 in defensive midfield.
